Wheremdo I tighten fan belt on W111 Coupe?
Sorry for such a simple question folks, but I tried searching using various terms like v belt, fan belt, tension, tighten, etc., and can't find what I need. When I pull away under power load (the wipers and blower were both on) the car squeals from a belt slipping. When I turn them off it didn't seem to squeal, but this could also be coincidence since it's on and off with rain today.
I just need to know where to put the wrench to adjust the tension for the belt. I just got this car and have never dealt with this engine before, so I am being overly cautious rather than tinkering. Also, do I just push the requisite part that I loosened until it tightens up and the belt has just a little give when I push on it, or is there more to it for this engine? Any other tricks or special precautions please let me know.
